South Oakland Shelter August 18th - 25th Servant Church of St. Alexander
South Oakland Shelter (SOS) provides homeless prevention, sustainable housing and career development strategies and programs for homeless and at-risk people seeking stabilization and self-sufficiency.
North Congregational will be assisting St. Alexander and St. Gerald Catholic Churches when St. Alexander hosts SOS the week of August 18, 2013. Combined we will provide transportation, meals, housing, entertainment and hospitality for 30 to 35 clients for a week from Sunday evening through the following Sunday morning. Monday through Friday, clients spend their days at work or at SOS training and counseling before returning to St. Alexander before dinner.
Sign up sheets asking for willingness and availability will be on the South Oakland Shelter table in Fellowship Hall on Appreciation Sunday. We will use those to fill in open slots in coordination with the two other churches and confirm with you your final assignments. Opportunities to help will include:
